Over all a very enjoyable and interesting experience although not sure we want to go back a second time. Not because they did not take good care of us. All staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is an older cruise liner (built in the "fifties") which means that when you are - like us - fairly...

We can't say enough about the SS Rotterdam. The history, the tours, the dining, the bars, and the staff are all top-notch. We're big fans of Holland American Line, so staying on this ship and exploring all of the preserved history was an incredible experience. The Hotel New York (Holland America's former HQ) is also highly-recommended for overnights and dining!

I was like coming home for me I sailed on this ship many times and was a little worried what I would find. Even before I boarded I knew I had no need to worry. The ship is absolutely pristine outside and in! I booked from the USA and exchanged a few e-mails with the booking dept because I wanted...

This was the second time I’d stayed onboard the SS Rotterdam, and I was pleased to have the opportunity to return. The SS Rotterdam was undoubtedly a magnificent liner in it’s day, and the space within the boat is really quite surprising. The facilities are great, with spacious rooms (or should that be cabins?) with great showers. The only negative,...

My husband and I stayed in Rotterdam on the ship. He had sailed from New York to Rotterdam some 50+ years ago as a young boy. Although it is permanently moored as a hotel, he did remember some details of his family voyage. Amenities are great with wonderful views of the city, and the rooms have been updated with many...

Well worth a visit. We did not stay here but it looks good. It was very interesting for us to visit this 1950's Liner in all its glory -if you like this sort of thing. It only had 750 passengers in its day and is large. It was closeish to where our Cruise Ship had moored and comparing one to...

Met all our needs on a business trip; spacious room, good quality food and drink with friendly and efficient staff. Easy access via taxi (€22 from Rotterdam Central station) or water taxi straight to the ship. Free WiFi was fast and reliable. Well equipped room coffee machine an unexpected bonus.

The ship has a very cool outdoor deck were you can enjoy a drink and have a look a the harbour. The food in the restaurant was okay but did not live up to the ships image. The waiter did'nt know anything about the wines and the waiter forgot to ask how we wanted our steaks.

After two disappointing experiences in 2010 and 2011, we decided to consider ss Rotterdam again for the 50th wedding anniversary of our parents. Organising it was a nightmare: utter inflexibility to deviate from the standard options and the staff had clearly been trained to say 'no that's not possible'. Upon arrival, what we already expected became true when checking in:...
